Groisman: the Resignation of Balcona is not important, the Railways need an independent Supervisory Board

The government will decide on the evaluation of the head of Ukrzaliznytsia (UZ) Adalbert Balcona only after the report to the Cabinet of Ministers. About it in interview “Лига.net” announced Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman.

“We will determine the day and date when Balcon will report on its work for the year. After this, the government will be determined. He worked on the contract, now working on labour law. The decision about his contract, the government will take after his report. While I have a lot of conflicting information. Some say that his team works fine, others badly. Some say that they are honest, others corrupt,” – said Groisman.

According to him, a folder with materials about corruption in Railways, granted by Minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan, are sent to NABOO.

The head of government reminded that it is time for the corporatization of UZ.

“Independent Supervisory Board – here’s what you need. I have set this task. And if we restart management, not only the head of government (and the question whether he will go or remain, I don’t have an answer), but all of the Directors. It is necessary to bring the best specialists to develop the company. And the state path only determines the criteria for evaluating their activities,” – said Groisman.

The Prime Minister said that decisions on staffing would be taken by the competition Commission.” It includes officials, seven Ministers, seven representatives of international financial organizations. And we gave them such powers that they, though without voting rights, are entitled to approval of a particular candidate. My desire: that we lead in the management of state companies professional people. And not to pull, not by party affiliation, not through a quota system. Then the situation will look very different,” – said Groisman.

We will remind, earlier the Minister of infrastructure Vladimir Omelian repeatedly demanded the dismissal of the head of the OUSE. Himself Balcon sure job as Chairman of the OUSE.
